HTC is mere hours away from presumably unveiling their latest and greatest flagship smartphone, and there are now indications Android fans may not have to wait months or even days to get their hands on one.
Android Central reported Friday that the wait to buy a new HTC One (M8) smartphone may be very short indeed - perhaps even an hour after the simultaneous keynotes in London and New York wrap up tomorrow.
Less than a week ago, UK retailer Carphone Warehouse confirmed that the Taiwanese manufacturer's latest smartphone will indeed go on sale at selected stores shortly after HTC's announcement.
Thanks to a tipster at the Android Central forums, there's now further compelling evidence to suggest that at least Verizon Wireless will also be selling the awkwardly named HTC One (M8) on the same day.
That evidence comes in the form of a Verizon promotional box that teases consumers to "Get ready to hit fresh" on March 25 at 1PM EST, which is only two hours after HTC's media event is scheduled to begin.
Tipster "Joe the Insider" also claims his unidentified Verizon Wireless store will also be receiving an honest-to-goodness M8 demo unit, which isn't much of a surprise considering the number of leaks that have been turning up lately.
Lending further credibility to the leaked image above is the fact that it appears to show off the dot-based flip case which turned up earlier this month in a separate leak, which is said to display the time and weather in "various color options" while closed.
The leak has ignited speculation that the HTC One (M8) could wind up being a Verizon exclusive (at least at launch), but thankfully we won't have to wait much longer to find out for sure.
